Day 6 Seek God

Saturday: Scripture: Matthew 6:34 “But seek first His kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow… for each day has enough trouble of its own.” We have no promise of tomorrow; therefore, it’s useless to be concerned about tomorrow, and so Jesus’ command not to be anxious about the day that might dawn. And it is true we have sufficient problems to cope with every day. So Father in heaven, give each person who will reads these words enough faith not to worry about the daily problems of life. We thank and …

Not Long Til Christmas

It’s barely more than three months until Christmas. In light of how 2020 has gone thus far, we might want to plan ahead for it just a bit. I’m not a last minute person, but I have always enjoyed the hunt for just the right gift for just the right person. Even so, I may have to switch tactics a bit this year. IF we’re not careful we will spend a lot of frustrated time comparing this Christmas to past years. But we will have more of a blessed time if we just take this year and enjoy what we …

We Can Trust Him On Our Journey

  I’ll never forget climbing the steep, rocky mountainsides of Petra… on a mule!! If you’re unfamiliar, Petra is an ancient city in Jordan that dates back to 300BC.  It is one of the world’s wonders as it used to be a thriving civilization.  Everything there is carved in rocks that are about 600ft tall.  Houses, temples, amphitheaters are all carved into rocks.  Perhaps the most recognizable site in Petra is The Treasury.  Most of you have probably seen this in the movie “Indiana Jones.”   The treasury is 130 ft tall, and the rocks surrounding The Treasury are about …

Coffee and Life Can Jolt Us!

I was intrigued by the new brand of coffee I spied. 50% of proceeds goes to veterans. Loved that! So instead of picking up our usual brand I picked up a bag of this new brand’s Rise and Shine light roast. Well when I made the pot of coffee it was delicious. But within a few minutes My chest hurt and I found myself jittery. I realized that this coffee actually has more caffeine, so I got a jolt to start my day! What do you drink of first thing? The troubles of the day, the losses you have had, the …

Concentrate and Breathe

Danny is being asked to concentrate a lot lately. It is hard work. But it is producing results. Sometimes he finds he is holding His breath and the visiting therapist will say breathe! I have had to remind myself more than once during all this to just breathe. And to concentrate. Concentrate on Danny. And most of all God’s Word and His faithfulness to it. Oh beloved, God is with you and He is telling you that you don’t have to hold your breath. He also says now is the time to concentrate. Remind yourself what the Word says. That’s …

Indecision? Try Grace Talk

“You know what killed that squirrel?” my husband Dan mused as we drove through our Arkansas neighborhood. Duh, I thought, a car ran over him. “Indecision,” he explained. Dan always seems to think in black or white terms – no grey areas. (“If you don’t like carrots, don’t eat them. If you hate working as a secretary, find another job.”) “Indecision?” I exclaimed. “Wait a minute! Are you comparing me to that squirrel?” Dan and I are living proof that opposites attract in relationships, especially in marriage. But after over 40 years of marriage, I think I’m finally learning a few …
